    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Nice find!

    Considering it's a little place, and the purchase was made on Friday, would I be wrong If I guess that could be a Factory Shop? [​IMG]

    They have amazing deals there, best part is you never know what you can end up on .. Too bad they won't post the shoes outside the shop ..

    New Somerville boots purchased last week, just before the end of the winter sale. Black calf with charcoal suede on the 363 last. The contrast works extremely well with darker, more understated trousers (I was just trying them on in this photo).

    I have a very shallow foot and the 363 worked well for me recently (see the boot above). The Jermyn Street staff kindly added full leather insoles, which helped a lot.

    One of the top speed hooks in my otherwise brand new Islays (3 wears) just came off while I was driving. It seems broken and I don't think it can be reattached.

    Should I email C&J to see if they can send me a replacement? Or should I try and go to a local cobbler. It won't be identical I guess and I live in a small town where I'm pretty sure cobblers don't usually deal with 450 pound boots.

    If happened to mine Mickey I would ring or email Crockett and Jones to complete repair under warranty.

    Thank you, I just used the contact form in their website.

    I'm a bit puzzled this happened to essentially brand new boots, especially at this price. I didn't feel I was wearing them too tightly laced or anything.

    I own a pair of northcote since 2010 and the dainite sole on one of the shoe is damaged (on the toe, no idea what I kicked). Should I send back to CJ, no idea how much recrafting is, but upper is in good condition that I feel its a waste of money.

    My other alternative is B. Nelson, though probably not that cheap either? Any of you guys would suggest some other rubber sole other than dainite?

    My Nothcote has been my go to bad weather boots for years

    Recently, I received a couple of new pairs of C&J shoes: 341 Sydney 9.5E loafers in dark brown burnished calf (on left) and 348 Edgeware 10E oxfords in dark brown burnished calf (on right). (@Cleav agreed, the dark brown burnished calf are great, mate. Thanks for the earlier advice!)

    The new Sydney loafers will join my earlier ones in black calf, to form a mated pair.

    The Edgeware oxfords are my alternative to MTO Westbourne in dark brown burnished calf. However, I may end up getting both. Hmm.

    I sent a pair of Sydney loafers in snuff suede back for exchange for MTO Teign loafers in snuff suede, i.e. exactly the same as the stock model available from C&J France. Alas, I tried unsuccessfully to source a pair via C&J UK. So, I will be forced to go down the MTO route, if I can't source a pair directly from C&J France presently.

    @PCK1 again, thanks for recommending the sleeker Teign loafers to me, which I prefer over the more chunky Sydney loafers as my preferred C&J suede loafers.
